Possible Problems

Advice

Leaks
For a major leak turn off your water at the main stopcock and turn off the electricity at the meter. There will be other stopcocks for the tank, sink etc. If a ceiling is bulging with water, you should let the water out before it brings down the whole ceiling. Put a bucket under the bulge and make a small hole to let the water through.

No water
If your pipes might be frozen you should turn off the water and open the cold taps. If pipes are not frozen and there is cold water at the kitchen sink (which comes straight off the rising main) then the problem is inside the house. If there is no water to the house at all then the main supply may have burst. If other houses are affected it will be the water company's responsibility. The water may be temporarily turned off because of works by the water company, which should have notified everyone affected.

Leaks from flat abovee
If the leak seems to be coming from the flat above, you should contact the occupant. You can report a leak from an empty flat on this system but if you are not sure the flat is empty but cannot contact the occupant, please get in touch with us.
